There is something magical about a really long skirt. Am I right or am I right? When a skirt is so long it rests on my toes and flirts with the floor, well, I just get really happy.
I bought this skirt at a thrift shop yesterday. When I saw it on the rack, I wasn't sure about the print, but when I tried it on, it was so comfortable and such a perfect length, I decided it was coming home with me. Now, I like the print. Flowers. Everyone likes flowers. They are a universally beautiful thing. What's not to like?
This is my new necklace. It is from Forever21. When I buy things from Forever21, I feel kind of silly because I am an adult woman and the store is geared toward 14-year-old girls, but what can I say? I like this necklace.
I never feel silly buying things from thrift stores. Buying second-hand clothing is the best thing ever. I love the hunt. I love the prices. I love taking something that might seem initially tacky or old fashioned and putting my own spin on it so it feels fabulous. I love the surprised looks I get when people ask me where I got my great dress/skirt/shoes/skirt and I reply "The Goodwill." Do you see my manic grin? That's a visual expression of how I feel about thrifting.
